about, this problem between israel and the united states over iran and what do we do about it? the prime minister is saying the united states ought to publicly draw a red line and tell iran you cannot go beyond this point in your nuclear weapons development. where do you see-- what do you see happening on this front? >> well, that's an approach i think that probably can't work, simply because the iranians may be doing things already that we don't know about. and i think it's legitimate to say, even if they don't cross the nuclear weapons threshold, if they get 90% of the way there, that's not a very comforting outcome. so let me suggest a different approach, bob. instead of red linees, let me suggest deadlines. what we ought to do is going to the iranians with a diplomatic offer and make clear what it is they have to stop doing-- all the enrichment material they have to get rid of, the international inspections they have to respect, and sanctions would be reduced and they would be out from under the risk of attack. if they don't meet the deadline, i think the united states, israel, and o
. and may god continue to bless the united states of america. thank you. >> and that was secretary of state hillary clinton speaking at the state department about tuesday's attack in libya that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans, saying that this is an attack that should shock the conscience of people of all faiths and reminding people that the u.s. is a force for peace and progress and that this attack was by a small and savage group of individuals. we remind you that president obama will comment at the white house less than an hour from now. we will also bring you that statement live. this has been a cbs news special report. i'm norah o'donnell along with charlie rose in new york. for those of you in the west, our coverage of this breaking news story continues. >>> good morning. to our viewers in the west, it is wednesday, september 12th, 2012. welcome to ""cbs this morning." the u.s. ambassador to libya has been killed. we'll have complete coverage from the middle east to washington. >>> the white house denies the president is snubbing israel's prime minister
at the u.n. as he usually does. at a meeting monday, mahmoud ahmadinejad accused the united states of backing what he called a fake regime in israel. that led to a walkout by israel's u.n. ambassador. >> also monday, a wide ranging interview with us, we ask him about the threat of an attack on iran's nuclear facilities and how his country would respond. >> would you retaliate against the united states if there's an attack by israel on iran? >> translator: well, by the principle of it, i don't take the zionist threats serious. >> they're bluffing? >> translator: we don't even take them into account. i would like to ask you, who's subservient to whom? the united states government to the zionists? which one is which? >> for a country ru you saw you don't take into account, you spend a lot of time talking about them, including here today in new york. you said israel has no historical roots in the middle east and the white house has called that statement by you disgusting, offensive, and outrageous. would you like to apologize? >> translator: do they have roots? if they have roots, then

and his name was barack obama. four years later he is president, he became president of the united states. what are your ambitions? >> well, you know, it is very flattering but i don't put myself in the same league with president obama. >> he is quite a unique talent. i am going to be mayor of san antonio as long as the voters will have me. my tenure would end in 2017 so i will be there and run for reelection and be there, if i do a great job then i will look around and see what is possible, of course the challenge is that we are in texas, texas is very red state, we have 29 statewide offices and it is 29 to zero in terms of republicans and democrats, so we will see. we will see. >> joaquin, part of what we learned in your brother's speech last night was that your grand jury immigrated from mexico. >> right. >> never got past the fourth grade, both of you went to stanford and have law degrees from harvard. how did that happen? you know, our grandmother and everybody in our family worked very hard, so that we could have the very best opportunity possible and, you know, as julian told the s
and be able to say who do we trust the most to be the president of the united states during these incredibly challenging times? i've watched mitt romney do this, and so have you, bob, every time he was back into a corner in the primaries he came ow with a great debate performance because that's where he shines. and he's going to do a great job on wednesday night. >> schieffer: governor, i certainly take your point, and i respect your opinion, but talking about being spun and so for example. it seems to me most of the problems governor romney's had thus far he has created for himself. for example, this tape where he said he's just basically writing off 47% of the electorate that was not the campaign. the governor himself said that was me. has that's thing-- is that thing really hurt him? >> you know, bob, i just don't think so. i really don't. i don't think a majority of the american people are focusing on that. here's what i think the american people and the voters are much smarter about than we give them credit for. they know political candidates at time, when they're being taped every minu
for half of our fellow american americans is the other side's choice for president of the united states. he wants to lead our country. in 2008, then candidate obama spurred similar controversy when he was caught on tape at a fund-raiser making these comments about conservative voters. >> it's not surprising then that they get bitter. they cling to their guns or religion or antipathy towards people who aren't like them. >> now, of course, all of this is coming as romney is trying to talk about jobs. that's the point he was making here in los angeles. chamber of commerce, when he spoke to that group yesterday. this is a distraction now for him. he heads off to utah and texas. he has fund-raisers there. >> how troubled are they by this? >> they think this is unfortunate. not so much his underlying point, which doesn't really contradict his campaign message, but the way he said it. there's no plans now to really back off this, issue an apology. because it does kind of square with a lot of romney's message, which is that the president has a campaign that wants more government, big government. an

(cheers and applause) america didn't become the land of opportunity by accident. my grandmother's generation and generations before always saw beyond the horizons of their own lives and their own circumstances. they believed that opportunity created today would lead to prosperity tomorrow. that's the country they envisioned and that's the country they helped build. the roads and bridges they built, the schools and universities they created, the rights they fought for and won. these opened the doors to a decent job, a secure retirement, the chance for your children to do better than you did. and that's the middle class, the engine of our economic growth. with hard work, everybody ought to be able to get there. and with hard work, e

for the united states for the rest of the year this weekend. >> tom, how much effect did the storm have on these prices and where are they going up the most? >> chip, we always spend the summer with about 200 barrels of gasoline inventory, which is to say we're always on just in time inventory. when you get anything that ripples through the system, a storm that interrupts production for a period of time, it can have a lasting impact, particularly in august. so it probably added about 5 to 15, maybe 20 cents a ga the irony is the prices went up most in places distance from the storm like chicago and detroit. that had little to do with the hurricane but a lot to do the hardware up that way, which has been finicky all summer long. >> what do you think in terms of seeing some relief? >> oh, i think you'll see relief. i don't know if ten days prices will be lower. but i think 100 days from now prices will be considerably lower. we bombed out at $3.25 the end of the year. i think there's a good chance we'll get to that. these are really, really big profits for refiners right now. they tend to

't expect to survive the assault. this man, speaking in english, accuses the united states of attacking islam. >> reporter: the september 14 nighttime raid was the mos destructive enemy attack in the decade-long afghanistan war. ur insurgents armed with automatic weapons and rocket- propelled grenades destroyed six harrier jets and attacked fueling stations. these pictures, taken by the taliban the morning after the ertack, show fires continuing to burn. all but one of the enemy fighters were killed, but so were two u.s. marines. sergeant bradley atwell and lieutenant colonel christopher raible died during the hours long fire fight that ended the assault. the video was e-mailed to the media by a taliban spokesman so it's impossible to tell from the tape when or where it was made or if the men in the video, scott, actually took part in the attack. >> pelley: bob, thanks very much. the u.n. secretary general, ban ki-moon, had asked iran's esesident not to say anything derogatory about israel during srat general assembly meeting this week. well, mahmoud ahmadinejad ignored that today. he c
. >> reporter: there are important divisions between the united states and libya on the investigation of what exactly happened at the consulate and the safe house that night. the u.n. ambassador susan rice said it appears that the attacks were not premeditated. but that's not what we're hearing here. the president of the libyan national council said not only does it look like they were premeditated, but it may have taken months in the planning. what i can tell you is we saw plenty of evidence of heavy weapons at this safe house. mortars and other kinds of weapons that take a level of expertise to deploy that accurately. we've also seen new cell phone footage of what appears to be libyans removing the body of ambassador christopher stevens from the consulate that night. they don't seem to know who he is. they identify him as a foreigner. they believe that he is alive at the time. they're shouting out whether anybody knows first aid. and the young man who showed us that video says that ambassador stevens was then rushed to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead. >>> in the race for the

that the united states is engaged in a war with islam and that the west is against islam. it's something that western politicians don't like to talk about and don't like to address. but it's what fuels the anger and the rage. and they're able to exploit that very easily, as was evidenced in libya. and that ideology is what is dangerous. so although one particular group may have been involved in planning the attack, the ideology fueling that kind of attack has come from a different place. and it's all over the world. it's a global threat. and some intelligence officials say it's not being dealt with aadequately. >> lara, that's an interesting piece in "the wall street journal" this morning about the ultra conservative islamist group that is a target of u.s. and libyan inquiries, the worry about this threatening the arab spring. how does this change u.s. policy in the middle east, since we've got protests in libya, egypt and now yemen this morning? >> u.s. policy in the middle east has been something of a roll of the dice since the arab spring began. it's been very clear to u.s. officials
